Biodiesel is the only source of renewable energy with a liquid shape and really available on the market. It is obtained from vegetal oils and can be used immediately pure and in mixture, as:
- Diesel substitute in transport sector.
- Heating fuel, without any modification of engines and boilers.
- Renewable: because it is obtained from the cultivation of oleaginous plants widely diffused;
- Biodegradable: because it is dispersible and dissolvable in the space of a few days. The waste of usual fuels persists on the contrary much longer;
- Safe: because it is guarantee of an energy efficiency as high as that of fuels and mineral combustibles;
- Efficient: because it is excellent in the performance of vehicles and heating systems.
